- Project Title:
- Physical and Environmental Controls Site Security Review – Summary Report
- Start Date:
- Monday, April 8, 2019
- Estimated Report Release Date:
- June 2019
The Postal Service implements environmental and physical security controls at its facilities to reduce the risk of system and equipment failure, damage from environmental hazards, and unauthorized access to its IT and mail processing assets. Measures include fire alarms, suppression systems, uninterrupted power supplies, guards, gates, locks, and access control cards.
The OIG is summarizing the review of four Processing & Distrubution Centers previously audited. Our objective is to identify and summarize the findings and recommendations in four previously OIG-issued area physical and environmental controls site security reports. The objectives for those four reviews were to determine whether USPS established effective physical and environmental security controls at P&DCs. As part of the summary review, we will identify other P&DC facilities where data suggests similar risks and conditions may exist.
- Are you aware of any incidents related to physical or environmental security over IT at the P&DC where you do business or work? Please provide the name of the P&DC.
- Do you have any concerns related to the physical and environmental controls over information technology at your P&DC?
- In your opinion, what is the greatest strength or weakness regarding physical and environmental controls over IT at Postal Service P&DCs?
